On July 17, companion bills were introduced in the House and Senate authorizing production of commemorative coins to honor the birth centennial of President John F. Kennedy. Since last year (and even earlier), collectors have been watching for a blip on the legislative radar that would signal plans for a Kennedy commemorative; as each month passed with nothing to authorize such a program, they became increasingly vocal in their disapproval. Once Kennedy’s 100th birthday (May 29) was in the rearview mirror, most of the complaints gave way to an unhappy sense of resignation.

The oversight has been all the more glaring… Full article at the source>

New Collectors.com Lets You Quickly Find
$1 Billion Of Coins, Banknotes And Other Collectibles

(Newport Beach, California) — Imagine the convenience of finding every coin, banknote or other collectible item you want that is currently available for sale online, all in one place.  That place now is Collectors.com (www.Collectors.com), a new, one-stop website that instantly provides information on the availability of more than 9 million collectibles currently offered for sale.

“This is a fantastic new, easy-to-use tool to find virtually every online listing for collectible items you’re seeking.  You no longer have to endure time-consuming and scattered hunts on multiple websites,” explained David Hall, Founder and President of Collectors Universe, Inc. (NASDAQ: CLCT).

“As a collector myself, I was blown away by the speed and power of Collectors.com, which allows you to find collectibles using a wide range of filters including price, seller and condition.  If it’s out there, Collectors.com will help you find it,” Hall emphasized.

On its August 27, 2015 launch, Collectors.com was gathering information about collectibles for sale from more than 542 websites involving a total of 53,684 sellers.  These sellers and sites combined for a total of 9,241,446 collectibles with an incredible aggregate value of $1,015,588,542.

Collectors.com launched with aggregated collectibles listings for rare coins, paper money, trading cards, autographs and stamps.  The site plans on expanding to dozens of other popular collectibles categories with future rollouts.

Collectors.com was created because of the frustration collectors often face at having to individually visit and search through dozens of websites, one-at-a-time, to find collectibles.  

Don Willis, President of the Professional Coin Grading Service division of Collectors Universe, explained the website’s origins:  “Everyone collects something.  As an avid collector, I used to spend hours every week searching websites and marketplaces for items I was collecting.  I tried using traditional search tools but they returned volumes of disorganized results that were not helpful in finding what I was searching for.  My searches were time consuming and typically ended in frustration.  The need for a collectibles aggregator was obvious.”

A view of the dedicated coins category on Collectors.com, a website where collectors can quickly find over $1 billion of collectibles offered for sale online.

“We assembled a superb technical team who, combined with the decades of collectibles experience found within Collectors Universe, Inc., created this unique value-added aggregator.  We have been beta testing Collectors.com for the past 8 months within the PCGS (coins) and PSA (cards) divisions of Collectors Universe Inc., and in the process of developing it we have discovered many new and exciting applications that will benefit both buyers and sellers.  Our goal is to add those applications as well as many more collectible categories as quickly as possible,” said Willis.

“Collectors.com does not buy or sell collectibles. It simply facilitates the meeting between the buyer and seller.  For the serious collector, Collectors.com is a powerful search tool which is actively monitoring the Internet.  For the merely curious, Collectors.com offers an exciting opportunity to discover items of potential interest.  For sellers, Collectors.com adds a new platform where thousands of potential buyers can easily find their coins and banknotes, and quickly link to their website for purchase,” he explained.

“Simply stated, the goal of Collectors.com is to list every collectible available anywhere in the world,” emphasized Willis.

An informative video that explains the simple-to-use Collectors.com system can be viewed on the home page, www.Collectors.com.

Collectors.com, patent pending, is a division of Collectors Universe, Inc. (NASDAQ:CLCT), the parent company of Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) and Professional Sports Authenticator (PSA), among other leading collecting-based services.
